Q&A: Bad reaction to vaccine?

What do I do if my baby has a bad reaction to a vaccine?

Re: What do I do if my baby has a bad reaction to a vaccine?

The Bump Expert

Luckily, most children only have mild reactions to vaccinations, if they have any reaction at all. It’s common for babies to have a bit of soreness or swelling at the site of the injection as well as a low-grade fever. They may also experience fatigue, crankiness, and a slight loss of appetite, so don’t be anxious if baby is showing any of these symptoms. The symptoms should last only for a day or two, but be sure to check with your doctor if you have any concerns. Your doctor may suggest giving baby an infants’ ibuprofen or acetaminophen for relief.


It’s also important to know that some vaccines are likely to cause specific kinds of reactions. The MMR vaccine (for measles, mumps, and rubella) can cause a fever and rash 7 to 10 days after baby is injected, and the DTaP vaccine (for diphtheria, pertussis, and tetanus) has been known to cause some children to cry inconsolably for many hours at a time. Severe reactions to vaccines are rare, but they do happen. Call your doctor (or 911) immediately if your child experiences any of the following symptoms:


[  ] High fever (over 104 degrees)


[  ] Difficulty breathing


[  ] Hoarseness


[  ] Wheezing


[  ] Hives


[  ] Paleness


[  ] Dizziness


[  ] Fainting


[  ] Rapid heartbeat


Keep in mind that all babies react differently to vaccinations and medications, so be sure to check with your doctor if baby starts to show any abnormal symptoms.

Q&A: Bad reaction to vaccine?

'Sudden-infant-death-syndrome (SIDS) has been reported following administration of vaccines containing diphtheria and tetanus toxoids and pertussis vaccine. The significance of these reports is not clear. It should be borne in mind that the three primary immunizing doses of these vaccines are usually administered to infants between the age of 2 and 6 months and that approximately 85% of SIDS cases occur in the period from 1 through 6 months of age with the peak incidence at age 2 to 4 months.' While they admit that SIDS has occured after vaccination with DPT containing vaccines, they attempt to brush it off by saying that that is because the majority of SIDS cases happen in the age range when vaccines are being given. This isn't much of a defence, since it may be because of the shots that the SIDS occurs in that age group. Evidence suggests this to be the case
